Temperature sensors and mating ports DD.1 Dimensional requirements for temperature sensors
Check dimensional accuracy as follows:
a) Maintain the temperature sensor and gauge at ambient air temperature.
b) Ensure that the axial length of the taper of temperature sensors is at least 10,5 mm.
c) Engage the temperature sensor with the ring gauge shown in Figure DD.1, by applying an axial force of
(35,0 ± 3,5) N and while maintaining the same force rotating the sensor up to 20°.
d) Ensure that leading edge is within the minimum and maximum steps of the gauge
